    Default Help - what style is my home?

    I've been told it is a colonial revival. True of False?

    It would help to know when it was built and in what general area you are located.

    It was built around 1910-1920 and is located in Highland Park, NJ. One town over from New Brunswick. The house was slightly modified at some point. A previous owner closed half the porch and added a bathroom. I never can find a home style that fits this type of house. Its a common type of home in my town for that time frame.

    Late-Victorian tri-gable ell. With wrap-around porch.

    Definitely Victorian, and more importantly, definitely NOT Colonial!
    Proud to be suburban free.

    It's a common mid-middle class equivalent to the upper middle class Queen Anne frame homes of the day. The give-away are the porch and portrubing gable with third floor window. While the house may not be able to hold its own to a Queen, it has/had many elements similar like a turned column wrap-around porch, somewhat elaborate window casements and sashes, etc. If you're considering remodel, I'd defintely dump the shutters since they don't belong.

    That is definitely Victorian style, and not a Cottage. Its too big to be a cottage and has all the style of a Victorian.
